Visited the Mellieha Air Raid Shelter without any high expectations, but we were all shocked by how informative the visit was. To begin with the admission price is reasonable at €2.80, and then you are left to your own devices to explore the tunnels in your own time. There are a few rooms that have been made up to how...

see how they dug these tunnels in a very sort time, and they are still opening up more areas, and there are others throughout the island.

Two families took our children, ages ranging from 6 to 18. Everyone was riveted. To learn of the conditions people lived in to survive was very educational. Young or old, worth a visit

These are genuine tunnels built during war, with waxwork characters in various rooms, showing how the Maltese hid during bombing etc., Very very moving.

Underground city, in use during second world war: inside you can see life during germany raids on Malta, find some artifacts and documents and long, dark corridors where people escaped from bomb. Interesting, not to miss visiting Mellhiea and north part of Malta island.

We were amazed at the amount of work put in by the builders. And also how little space each person had to live in. It was mind blowing. I can't imagine how terrifying it would have been during the time when bombs were dropping all round. Well worth the 2.40 euros and the walk.

I wanted to take my 13 year old daughter here to give her an insight into Malta's history and try to help her understand what War time was like for people in different places. We spent about an hour walking around this large tunnel and reading the information posted around it. There were rooms set up as they would have... More

We were told about this by a member of hotel staff. If this is the site near Selum palace it is not signposted . A great place of interest.

To be honest I was a bit disappointed with our to the air raid shelters. After visiting a similar attraction in Ramsgate The Tunnels I was eager to experience and share in a similar war time exhibit. Sadly these tunnels could do so much better. A guide either audio or in person telling the story of what is an incredible... More
